Event Details

Operation Barbarossa, Hitler’s invasion of Russia in June 1941, aimed at nothing less than a war of extermination to annihilate Soviet communism, but it led to the destruction of the Third Reich, and was cataclysmic for Germany, with millions killed. Drawing on unseen archival material, top broadcaster and historian Jonathan Dimbleby puts Barbarossa in its proper place in history for the first time, transforming our understanding of WW2 and the twentieth century. ‘Like a fast-moving juggernaut of horror, Jonathan Dimbleby’s Barbarossa is a page-turning descent into hell and back. Part warning, part fable, but all too true, this fresh and compelling account of Hitler’s failed invasion of the Soviet Union should be on everyone’s reading list for 2021’. (Amanda Foreman).

This is a pre-recorded event which will be available from 9am on 25 September to 9pm on 31 January 2022.
